Crochet | Odds and Ends Scrap Afghan Pattern Great For Scrap Yarn!

Today is another great guest blogger craft project by my friend Sharon. She is sharing with us today her crochet afghan pattern that uses up a lot of your left-over yarn...a great way to use up your scrap stash!

Sharon's Odds and Ends Crochet Afghan

"I’ve been working on this for more than a dozen years, so the pattern is a tad hazy. Its actually one my mom taught me, and I don’t know where she got it from".

Chain on your stitches * must do in multiples of 5.

Row 1 and 2: Double Stitch, chain 3, turn and repeat

Row 3: Double stitch 5, create a chain, and loop around the stitch 2 rows below. Double stitch 5, create a chain, and loop around. Repeat. When you get to the end of the row, you will either have 5 or 10 double stitches to the end. Chain 3, turn and repeat

Continue until afghan is the size that you desire.

With mine, I change colors every 2 rows, but you can do it more often or less often. If you aren’t using scraps, you can create a pattern with them. This is a very versatile pattern.
